Veg Spring Salad recipe - The Cooks Pantry


Matt Sinclair



  • 1 ball buffalo burrata
  • 1 bunch Dutch carrots, sliced on an angle
  • 1 bunch coriander, tops only
  • 1 blood orange
  • 1-3 macadamia nuts
  • 2 small fennel bulbs, thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch radish, cut into wedges
  • 1 lime, juice
  • Salt
  • Cobram Estate Classic Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  • Combine radish, carrots and fennel in a bowl.
  • With a mortar and pestle, grind the coriander tops, a pinch of salt and drizzle of extra virgin olive oil together until you have a thick dressing consistency. Add lime juice and mix through. Pour dressing over salad and work the flavours into the salad with your hands.
  • Remove skin from blood orange and segment into wedges, removing the white membrane.
  • To serve salad, place buratta in the centre of a plate and surround it with the spring salad. Top with blood orange wedges and finish with some blood orange zest and grated macadamia nuts.
